Hey,

If no subnet is defined the clients will connect to a DC which advertises itself using generic service records (essentially records that are not linked to a specific site).

That may result in a very poor choice since the system has no good way of determining the cost of a link. For instance, it could result in a connection to a hub-site on a slow link, if that hub-site published the appropriate service records in DNS.

If you need the site to authenticate using DCs for another site you should add the subnet to the existing site (logical site rather than physical site). I guess you don't have any Domain Controllers within that site?
